What We Offer

A law degree provides an opportunity to develop a solid understanding of the law and legal principles, as well as transferable skills in critical thinking and analysis, and verbal and written communication.

 

In conjunction with our UK partner institutions, University of Liverpool and Oxford Brookes University, we offer full-time and part-time undergraduate and postgraduate law degrees, and vocational legal training.

 

Our programmes offer an excellent foundation for anyone wishing to pursue a career in law – and indeed any career which requires a strong academic grounding.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bachelor of Laws LLB (Honours)

Our Bachelor of Laws (Honours), or LLB programme, is delivered in partnership with the University of Liverpool and is offered on a full-time and part-time basis, over 3 or 6 years respectively.

 

This undergraduate degree covers English law and is recognised by the Solicitors’ Regulation Authority and the Bar Standards Board as a qualifying law degree in England and Wales. It is also a Cayman qualifying law degree.

 

This status means that graduates of our LLB programme who wish to enter the legal profession are able to pursue vocational training with us here in Cayman (see Professional Practice Course), or in England and Wales (Legal Practice Course or Bar Professional Training Course). This degree is awarded by the University of Liverpool.

LLM/PgDip in International Finance

Our Master of Laws / Postgraduate Diploma in International Finance: Law and Regulation is delivered in partnership with the University of Liverpool. It offers in-depth postgraduate level study into both the legal and policy aspects of international finance, including financial markets, banking law, international insolvency, money laundering and public-private partnerships.

 

This programme has been developed to serve the needs of Caymanian and international law firms: to equip professionals with the best tools to fulfill their ambitions.

 

This degree is awarded by the University of Liverpool. The LLM and the PGDip are NOT qualifying law degrees and do not confer eligibility to pursue vocational legal training, nor to enter the legal profession.

Professional Practice Course (PPC)

Our Professional Practice Course (PPC) vocational training programme is delivered in partnership with Oxford Brookes University and is for anyone with a Cayman qualifying law degree who wishes to enter the legal profession in the Cayman Islands.

 

On completion of the PPC, graduates must complete their Articles of Clerkship in order to fulfil the training requirements to become an Attorney-at-Law in the Cayman Islands. A student who successfully completes the Qualifying Examination of the PPC will be awarded a Post Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice by Oxford Brookes University.

 

The PPC operates under the supervision of the Legal Advisory Council of the Cayman Islands.
